Okay, so for how long did I wish that Vaeh would be normal? Well she's getting that "normal" thing down pat! Not only does she act like a very normal 2 year old & a very normal little sister, but she also gets bumps & bruises in a normal sense. (Just now as I'm typing this post, I can hear her & Gabby getting into a little scuffle - must not be too bad, though, Gabby didn't yell "MOM!" - LoL)
We usually make it up to Mawmaw's shop (the florist store) once a week. We tend to pop in after we drop off Gabby at school. Yesterday happened to be our day. We stopped to pick up something that they needed dropped at Gabby's school, & they offered lunch. Plus, if I were to leave without Vaeh getting to see Mawmaw over lunch, I'd be mud!
Since there's not much time after that until Gabby needs picked up, we just hung around & talked with the girls. There's 3 girls other than my 2 aunts that work in the shop & Vaeh has fun with all of them! Missy takes care of stuff out in the green house, so her & Vaeh are now best buds. Vaeh LOVES going out to the green house. I told Missy that I'd bring Vaeh's high chair up & we'd set her out there when Missy's working & let Vaeh play in the dirt! I'll be sure to get pictures if we ever get around to it!
We were up in the main part of the shop & Miss V was busy running around between work stations. My Aunt Deb was taking a step back & didn't see miss thing & ... BOOM! Vaeh fell down. Usually no biggie & I was trying to blow it off, but Deb says "she hit when she fell." So when we were checking her over, we found it. There was a red line on her chin from where she had hit the edge of the shelf. It wasn't bleeding too bad, just a bit that anyone would expect. But the closer I looked, there was a very tiny gash. It was open, but again not bleeding too much. It was one of those cuts that if I'd taken her in to the ER they'd probably have thrown a stitch in it just to charge the insurance a little more (LoL)!!
So, Nurse Mommy back to work! We put a band aid on it after cleaning it & putting ointment on it. I pulled the band aid a little snug to try & hold the cut together. When we got home, it looked like it had bled some, so I took the band aid off to check it out. It had already closed!! But just to be on the safe side, I put a few steri stips over it. (They look better than the band aid I think...) Its a good thing I kept ahold of all the stuff we used to use for Vaeh's NJ tube:0) (I'll have to tell you all sometime about our experiences with changing the tape on THAT!) Here's what she looked like this morning:
It looks much better in person:0) The orange -ish stuff around the edges is an adhesive bonder to make them stick! So my hoarding of medical supplies comes in handy!
You wouldn't even know that she'd done anything this morning.. she's just as "normal" as ever!
